Baja Reef at Marineland of The Pacific
Palos Verdes, CA

At Marineland, formerly located in beautiful Palos Verdes at the invigorating Pacific shore, I swam through the Baja Reef attraction, which was a swim-through aquarium containing a variety of sea life including sharks, which would gracefully float about one in the deeper quadrants, octopi, manta rays, jellyfish, and stingrays. One was provided with snorkels and a wetsuit to skim the surface, but could plunge deeper as long as one could hold one's breath. At one point, a girl dropped a bracelet which drifted all the way to the bottom by some starfish, so I gallantly retrieved it for her, to which I was rewarded with a smile and a peck on the cheek.

The aquarium was viewable to onlookers through thick glass down on the deeper level, to view the divers swimming with the denizens of the watery depths. ∞
